Longmire Ranger Station
Park entry fee required. Drivers may be required to not only have snow chains, but may be required to install them at Longmire. Route is north out of Paradise Parking Lot, passing west of Alta Vista,east of the Glacier Vista area, and up the non-avalanche zone chute to Panorama Point. Completion of this activity completes the requirement for a moderate showshoe. An ice axe can be handy when used properly to glissade back down from Panorama Point.
Meet at museum / ranger station to check road conditions and carpool to Paradise. Will do snowshoe near Longmire if road prognosis is poor. Ice axe required. Bring avy gear if you have it, but we will not tempt fate. You will need park pass or equivalent. Be prepared with chains or 4wd. We will try to organize a meal on the way home. Leader phone 206.852.8422. Co-leader Gay at 206.898.0599. Cheers! NOTE: There is no snow at Paradise as of 11/7/12, but I'm optimistic! If sufficient snow does not occur in time, I'll postpone the trip until we can do it. Think Snow!
